Ithaca College’s licensing and trademark enforcement program is a critical component of our overall branding as we strive to ensure the standard of excellence for which the college is known.
Any vendor creating merchandise (apparel, bags, writing utensils, mugs, etc.) bearing any of Ithaca College's protected terms, whether for on-campus departments or organizations or for third-party vendors to sell in stores, must be approved as an official licensee before placing any of Ithaca College's protected names or artwork on any merchandise.
Licensed vendors producing merchandise for external organizations and businesses outside of Tompkins County, further described in Licensing and Approval Process, will be required to pay a royalty fee for the use of any of the college's protected terms or official artwork. Licensed vendors producing merchandise for use by internal departments, offices, and student groups will not be subject to royalty fees.
